Our Newest Project

It looks like we are buying the bank-owned condo I mentioned in an earlier post.  We have a contract, and as long as we are happy with things after doing "due diligence," we will soon own a little pied-a-terre.

The beach house is great, but we really need a small place in the city during the work week.  After two years of renting a very tiny apartment, we knew we needed something slightly larger, so we could entertain comfortably -- or something even smaller, so we wouldn't even be tempted to try to entertain!

Other criteria included an easy commute to work, a safe neighborhood, a parking space, and a pet friendly building with an elevator; and it needed to be well-priced.  This little condo met all of our criteria.

When we saw the rough shape of this condo (which explained the "too good to be true" price) we were ready to walk away -- then the realtor threw out two little words -- "boat slip".

We were hooked.

This is the slip that goes with the condo.  I wonder whose boat that is?  Maybe it comes with the slip?


  1. i really like this idea and am thankful you found something to meet your needs. can't wait to see it when you're done! :o)


  2. Well, you certainly will be busy with two re-do's happening... It will be fun to watch...

  3. Congrats! I can't imagine the treat of living on the water in TWO different places. You've been blessed! Are you thinking sailboat or power boat?

  4. You'll have everyone thinking that life on the west coast is all about water and the good life.....but is!
    Great find - you'll be glad you did this on those long days when the drive to the coast just seems too much.

  5. You really love to re-do don't you!!! The condo couldn't be in better hands. Can't wait to see how it all unfolds.

  6. Awesome. Sounds great. Congratulations.


We love to hear what you think!
